Hi, I'm Derian.

I am a photographer and a mother of one human, a pup and two cats. Photography has always been a hobby from a young girl with a disposable camera to high school film classes. This hobby led me to being nineteen and spending my entire modest months salary on a spiffy DSLR.

Now, almost a decade later, I get to make it my career. Sustaining my tiny family on dreams, goals, and a whole lot of raw emotion has been my greatest adventure. Each time someone chooses me as their photographer, allowing me to preserve a moment in time, I'm reminded again of how important each persons story is. Some sessions result in tears, most in laughs. What I work to capture the most: connection.

“Derian is an absolute blast to work with. I’ve never met anyone who can hold onto professionalism so well while simultaneously being incredibly down to earth and hilarious. The photos I got back from our session were breathtaking as well!”
